Background

Steve is currently a part-time senior Lecturer in Advanced Analytics having recently retired from Rolls-Royce (April 2020) where he was an Engineering Associate Fellow and EHM Specialist working within the Rolls-Royce Digital organisation.  During his 41-year career at Rolls-Royce he held positions within the Measurement Engineering group, Electronics and Measurement Techniques department, Strategic Research Centre, Business Process Improvement Centre, Controls Engineering and System Design Engineering. Prior to this he worked for Electronic Flow Meters where he was responsible for the test and commissioning of flow measurement systems in the oil and gas industry.

His main interests is in the use of data mining and advanced analytical techniques for asset health monitoring applications.  Steve holds a degree in Mathematics and Computer Science and a PhD in the application of expert systems for vibration analysis.  In addition to being a Chartered Engineer, he is a Fellow member of both the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
